Wagner, G.; et al. (2019): Green Moral Hazards

Wagner, Gernot, and Daniel Zizzamia. 2019. “Green Moral Hazards.” SSRN Electronic Journal.

"‌When a green moral hazard is applied, its adherents attempt to wrestle with the chimera to make a political statement about the world. Thus, rather than retreating into the labyrinth of the green moral hazard and pitting technofixes against deeper systemic transformation, technofixes like geoengineering should be discussed out in the open in ways that encourage what philosopher Helen Longino labels, “transformative criticism.” Doing so would also greatly expand the attention paid to the underlying environmental problem in the first place, in essence using (solar) geoengineering to expand the broader climate conversation."
